Currently dom inspector appears to  present attributes for a node in a tree grid with 1 column and a row per attribute pair.  These attributes seem to each be a xul label which means they can't be read letter by letter since they don't implement nsIaccessibleText see bug 396166.  It would be nice if attributes and there values were in different columns, and it were possible to read the attribute name and value a letter at a time.

Reproducible: Always
Depends on: 396166

This isn't the case.  Where does it seem like this is true?
iirc, they are presented by grid with two columns in XUL, perhaps there's something wrong how that grid is exposed to AT (since basically grid isn't exposed as a table). Otherwise it's dupe of bug 396166.
Is that the Local Name/Namespace URI/Node Type grid above the tree, or what are we talking about?  Comment 0 mentions attributes.

I must I misread the bug description. In this case the bug 396166 doesn't cover this bug and then XUL tree cell accessible should implement nsIAccessibleText. 

Btw, this XUL tree is exposed to AT as a table with two columns.
